Summer School 2021

Summer School Applications Now Being Accepted

The West Shore School District is offering summer remediation and acceleration courses at NO COST to students or their families this year.

Session Dates: June 10 – July 22, 2021

  • All credit recovery courses are online via CAOLA. Acceleration courses are noted as CAOLA or Schoology courses.
  • Students have 24-hour access to their courses.
  • All credit recovery course work must be completed prior to 3:00 p.m. Thursday, July 22, 2021. Additional time may be granted for full credit acceleration courses in math and English.

Credit Recovery Courses

Credit Recovery Courses are available for high school students to retake a class previously taken but failed by the student. These credit recovery courses contain only the essential course content and can be completed in a very condensed time frame over the six-week summer school program. All credit recovery courses will be delivered online through CAOLA, are self-paced and will be monitored by West Shore staff. 

Credit Acceleration Courses

Credit Acceleration Courses are available for high school students interested in taking a course for the first time for original course credit. These acceleration courses contain the full course content and require a greater time commitment from the student. Typical quarter (.25 credit) or semester based (.50 credit) courses can reasonably be completed within the six-week summer school program. Yearlong (1.0 credit) acceleration courses will require a substantial time commitment from the student and may necessitate eight weeks for completion. Only a limited selection of courses for acceleration are available online through CAOLA or Schoology, and these courses will be monitored by West Shore staff.
